A DANGEROUS EPIDEMIC
HOW TO REVERSE INCIVILITY AND THE VIOLENCE WITH IT
STEP ONE: IDENTIFY THE DISEASE Our first step was to identify the disease causing a rise in incivility. It’s name is rudeness.
STEP TWO: FIND THE CURE Our second step was finding the cure. In a word, the cure is kindness, not random kindness alone, but rather a kindness lifestyle.
STEP THREE: ADMINISTER THE CURE Our third step, teaching a kindness lifestyle, is now in progress with inspiring results.
THE DISEASE – RUDENESS VIRUS -CONSIDER THE FACTS
RUDENESS CAN LEAD TO VIOLENCE + FREQUENCY OF EXPOSURE + PROPENSITY TO SPREAD
America is infected with a rudeness virus that is raging out of control!
THE CURE – KINDNESS ANECDOTE
People are not born knowing how to treat one another well. Civility and a kindness lifestyle must be taught. American Civility Association has developed an evidence based formula for restoring civility and diminishing senseless acts of rudeness and violence.
We develop SEL (Social Emotional Learning) Curricula and Materials with Train the Trainer sessions that feature the latest Brain Building Science and reading components. We call this a Heart Education.
THE AMERICAN CIVILITY ASSOCIATION FORMULA
Our formula is built on the latest brain-building research as it relates to civility tenets like, gratitude, kindness and other social emotional learning components. After 4 years experience piloting our heart education/civility programs, we can confidently report:
“Civility begins with gratitude; then kindness, goodness and respect will follow.”
